    OK, my nephew is giving me his 8820 for a backup (he is upgrading to a newer BlackBerry). I have Verizon; he has AT&T...

    I have a Tour 9630.

    If I should need to use the 8820 in place of the 9630, what all do I need to do???

    Is there a SIM card that needs changing??? Does he need to keep his SIM card for his new BlackBerry???

    Do I need a new SIM card (or will my Verizon card work)???

    Will it require re-activation from Verizon???

    Will the AT&T 8820 work at all with Verizon???

    Thank you for any comments!

    well technically if you have verizon you can't use the 8820 as a backup since it is a GSM phone that uses SIM cards.

    So basically you can't use the 8820 on Verizon's network.

    EDIT: although the tour has a SIM card preinstalled in it, that still will not allow you to use the 8820 on verizon's network
